It’s time to sing along again: ten years after Mamma Mia! became a surprise box office blockbuster, sequel Mama Mia! Here We Go Again hits the big screen July 20. Sail back to the Greek Island of Kalokairi, where Sophie (Amanda Seyfriend) is continuing to learn about her mother’s mysterious past as she prepares to face her own motherhood. Lily James (Downton Abbey’s irrepressible Rose) joins the cast in flashbacks as the younger version of Meryl Streep’s Donna — one of many characters who we’ll meet younger versions of — including Christine Baranski’s Tanya, Julie Christie’s Rosie and Sophie’s “three dads” (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård). Also, keep an eye out for Andy Garcia and Cher. The latter joins the franchise as Sophie’s grandmother who shows up uninvited and intent on offering her granddaughter some guidance. As in the first film, listen up for new takes on ABBA hits including “Waterloo,” “When I Kissed the Teacher,” “Fernando” and more. mammamiamovie.com
